Each year, The Corps Network honors several individuals as Corpsmembers of the Year. These young people have joined Service and Conservation Corps, and through their experiences have made a difference in their communities, while tackling some of America's greatest challenges and improving their own lives.
This coming February they will be honored in Washington, D.C. as part of The Corps Network 2015 National Conference. Each person will give a speech to introduce one of the general sessions during the conference, and will also join Members of Congress on Capitol Hill to talk about their experiences, and how their Corps programs provide valuable, transformative experiences each year for over 26,000 American youth nationwide.
